Relax requirements to offer a discount in secondary markets
Sometimes, in secondary markets, prices are not proportional to the original prices in the default market. This is because you may have set a price adjustment, either positive or negative,
or because you have set fixed prices for some products.
Also, if you collect taxes, prices may change depending on the tax configuration. Specifically, if you enable 'All prices include tax', prices in secondary markets may be lower than the original prices in the default market, because taxes are included in the prices.
These price differences in secondary markets could potentially prevent Frequently Bought Together from offering discounts in scenarios where they should be.
Before Shopify Markets came out, discounts were created with a minimum purchase amount constraint to minimise the side effects the Shopify discounts exhibit, as explained at https://docs.codeblackbelt.com/article/1463-important-implications-about-discounts.
For safety reasons, the minimum purchase amount requirement was set to match the bundle total,
not the 'Minimum bundle price to offer a discount' preference, even though this preference is first checked before creating a discount.
It's important to note that the 'Minimum purchase amount' requirement is set in the shop currency, so it is not apparent how it works in secondary markets or with different currencies. Indeed, the scenario is even worse if you have configured price adjustments or fixed prices.
You can enable this preference to relax the purchase amount requirement to increase the likelihood of offering discounts in secondary markets when prices are not directly proportional to the original prices because price adjustments or fixed prices have been set.
When enabled, the 'Minimum purchase amount' value will be set to the 'Minimum bundle price to offer a discount' preference for each discount only in secondary markets.
The minimum purchase amount requirement in the main market will still be set to the total bundle.
